About Casa GR
Rediscovering Casa GR’s Charm
Years had stripped the first-floor apartment in NoLo’s ‘ringhiera’ building of its distinct features. However, a thoughtful design intervention has now breathed new life into it.
Light and Space Reimagined
The apartment’s many openings inspired a repositioning of the living spaces along the facade. Consequently, a luminous corridor emerged, adorned with four windows that ensure light spreads evenly. Moreover, a full-height retractable panel offers the flexibility to isolate the bedroom as needed.
A Fusion of Function and Aesthetics
A previously installed steel beam now proudly serves as both a decorative feature in the living area and a divider between the living room and kitchen. Additionally, the living area boasts a standout island, graced with sage-colored three-dimensional tiles.
A Bold Approach to Interior Design
Entering through a full-height doorway from the corridor, one discovers a space alive with vibrant colors. A walk-in closet cleverly conceals itself behind a geometric curtain, and a rust-hued wall conceals the bathroom door. Inside, ceramic tiles in two sizes and colors dictate the space’s geometry, featuring a large shower (with a bench) and a sink with a full-wall mirror, effectively enlarging the room. The apartment skillfully blends modern furnishings with classic designs, unified by an oak floor in a French herringbone pattern.
This revitalized space not only respects its heritage but also introduces a modernist flair, marrying tradition with contemporary elegance in the heart of Milan.
